Kas kaitsta tarkvara ja kliente võltsijate eest?

VõmmVõimalik, et kõige hullem spinn, mida olen tarkvarapiraatluse kohta lugenud!

Loe artiklit: Microsofti tarkvarakaitse platvorm. See on sama halb kui Patriot Act! (AKA: peame kaitsma teie vabadust ja olete patrioot, kui loobute mõnest oma vabadusest, et saaksime teie vabadust kaitsta ... ah?). Microsoft oleks pidanud selle lihtsalt sisememo tegema:

Microsofti kasumikaitse platvorm: tarkvara on kulukas ja kasumit teenib katuse kaudu!

Olen veendunud, et enamik inimesi varastab ainult siis, kui peab. Muidugi, on palju inimesi, kes varastavad selle pärast - aga ma arvan, et see pole enamus. Ma arvan, et räägin paljude inimeste jaoks, kui ütlen seda Microsofti tarkvara IS kallis. Samuti pole mul kunagi mingit ootust kunagi toetuse saamine. Ja - ma tean, et tarkvara töös hoidmiseks pean sõltuma värskendustest. Ja - ma tean, et pean Microsofti tarkvara pahatahtlike rünnakute eest kaitsmiseks ostma ja installima muu tarkvara.

Sõna „võltsimine” pole täpne termin. Tarkvara pole võltsitud ... kastid ja CD-d võivad olla ... kuid tarkvara on tegelik Microsofti tarkvara. Ebaseaduslikult kopeeritud ja installitud tarkvara vastu võitlemine seda teeb EI ei kaitse tarkvara ega kaitse kliente. Teie toodet armastavad kliendid on alati nõus selle toote eest maksma. (Maksin XP ja Office XP eest)

See on Microsofti jaoks uskumatult asjatundmatu ja sisutihe spin, et selline nõme välja panna. Kas on keegi, kes usub, et see on aus sõnum? See on täna turunduse probleem, inimesed ei usu seda, sest see on uskumatu.

    “Iâ??m a firm believer that most people will only steal when they have to.”

    I sooooo want to believe you. I so much so want to believe that the loaves of bread that are stolen only go the feed the hungry family of the thief. I so much so want that to be true…

    But, in this day and age I believe that software, anybody’s software, is seen through the smoked-glass spectacles of the early years of Microsoft’s Windows 3.something… NOT that copying it was right(!!!) but rather that Microsoft didn’t “seem to mind” the copying. (Wholly not true but that was the perception.)

    I don’t believe that Joe Average is capable of clearly distinguishing between the hard work of select programmers, trying to eek out a living, and the mega-business-monoliths that are just trying to exact a fair price for their product. As such there is little concern on Joe’s part which software he or she “uses” in what ever legal or illegal fashion.

    This is a matter of perception and a flawed one at that. We should pay for every program we use. I just don’t believe that Joe Average maintains the same perception.

    sorry…just my $0.02

    No apology necessary, William! I think we’re closer to agreement than you might think.

    I think the debate is worthy of discussion. Does piracy help a software company by distributing software efficiently? I’m sure it does for some.

    Perhaps I am naive in thinking folks would pay because I pay for software. I must admit that I have utilized pirated software and then paid for it later as well. Sometimes the trial is very limited and I still wasn’t sure if it was worth the money.

    In my heart of hearts I believe that supply and demand control pricing. By circumventing and restricting that with controls that force a person to buy, I think you are asking for people to steal it instead.

    How much is Windows worth? $400? $100? $10/mo? Why is it worth more money on a new computer (OEM) rather than an upgraded computer? I think the pricing structure is inherently flawed, and Microsoft winds up spending a LOT of money on Piracy rather than simply making their software more affordable.
